At a previous job I've worked on, there were clear lines between frontend developers and backend developers. When being in a refinement meeting backend developers would say things like "Oh I can't estimate this user story, it's frontend!".

I always thought this made sense. At this time I never really worked in the backend. It seemed "scary" to me, so I was absolutely fine with this categorization.

This article Opens in new tab arguments clearly against this. Frontend became way more complex than a few years ago and it's not only about making things look pretty anymore, the article states. We already do the same work in the frontend and the backend.

If you think frontend and backend should be separated clearly, I definitely recommend this article to you. Read it here:
